I see the following from Mumbai consulate instructions under FAQ : (http://photos.state.gov/libraries/mumbai/1057584/senkx/BMB%20IV%20Packet%204%20January%202015%20Revision_001.pdf). Does it mean that I can accompany my mother for her visa interview at Mumbai. Has anyone done this for IR5 ?


Who can attend my visa interview?
Generally, you may not bring anyone else, other than a U.S. citizen or Legal Permanent Resident relative who has petitioned for you, to your interview.
We do make the following exceptions to this policy:
Applicants under age 18 may be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
Elderly applicants or applicants with disabilities may be accompanied by a helper.
